SBS appoints new Head of Food and Entertainment

SBS is determined to keep reality TV and factual entertainment firmly on its agenda – hiring Emily Griggs to oversee Food and Entertainment makes that clear.
Emily Griggs, new SBS head of food and entertaiment

The multicultural broadcaster has appointed BBC Studios alumna Emily Griggs as their new Head of Food and Entertainment. Griggs will start at the end of August, once she has mentally transitioned from BBC Studios, where she has been first a Development Executive and Head of Development and Content over the last three years. It seems that nothing (except maybe a lack of funds) can stop SBS from blitzing the reality TV, unscripted, light entertainment space. This portfolio includes some of SBS most successful original shows, including the broadcaster’s largest ever commission, The Cookup with Adam Liaw.
